I am aware of that, but that is not what I asked. I wanted to know which
packages in hamm have overlaps with packages in either bo or rex that
cause the --force-overwrite switch to be needed. I think those are the
first packages that need to be fixed regarding overlaps between hamm
packages and older (bo, rex, buzz) packages.
BTW, are there somewhere rex and/or buzz archives online? I believe there
used to be a full rex tree at debian.crosslink.net when hamm was already a
few months old, but it seems to have disappeared.
